In this section:

Using Shortcuts

This document uses the following format for listing shortcuts:

Example:

Command Windows Mac OS Linux or Unix
Copy Ctrl+C Cmd+C Ctrl+C

To perform a command, press the buttons listed together at the same time. For example, to copy in Windows, press Ctrl and C at the same time.

Tip: The plus sign (+) means that you must press two keys surrounding the plus sign at the same time. If there is more then one plus sign (such as Ctrl+Shift+C), it means that all three buttons surrounding the plus sign must be pressed at the same time.

Abbreviations:

Note: Some keyboard shortcuts perform different functions based on cursor location (focus). For example, if you press Home on Windows while viewing a web page, Mozilla will move to the top of the web page. However, if you press Home on Windows while the cursor is in a text field, the cursor will go to the beginning of the text field.
